Non-prime retail facilities have proved to be one of the most resilient real estate asset classes during the pandemic. In view of Focus Estate Fund’s concentration on the value added segment of the retail real estate market, we believe that the Fund and its portfolio will continue to flourish over the months and years to come”.
